Wordpress Comments

We have a website that is using the Envato Wordpress theme.  We have never used the site for blog posts before this week.  We have created a page, http://www.fbcptc.org/devotion-spot, that now will list weekly posts.  The posts are shown 1 per page and we are asking people to comment on each post.  However, as we added the 2nd post this week, we noticed that the comments from the first week were still listed.  It seems that the comments are being created at a page level instead of the post level.  Our web designer is not sure how to fix this beyond copying and pasting the previous week's comments.  However, this is not a satisfactory solution as it prevents replies to previous comments and if someone posts a comment on a previous week, it will show on the current week.  Is there a solution to this?

Not sure what you did to list the posts, but it certainly sounds like a problem with the Loop and the post ID is not passing correctly so the first post's comments show on other pages.  

We would need to see the page template code to assist further.

I second what Jason suggested.

Alternatively, it might be as simple as going into the "Reading" settings and selecting the page to display posts in the drop-down. I'm assuming you might have set a static homepage in the settings here, unless your theme has a home.php or similar file to create the homepage.

If your theme does have a custom home.php, you can still select a page to display blog posts under the reading settings without selecting a homepage.
